The bridge is preset and held down by the tension of the strings. Some cellos arrive new with the bridge not set at the correct height for the player. It may need to be adjusted.
Gradually tighten each string in the sequence G-D-C-A (inner strings first, then outer strings). Tighten only 1-2 notes higher, one string at a time. Then tighten the next string. Do not tighten one string all the way to the desired pitch, as this will create unequal pressure on the bridge, which may cause it to fall.
The pegs can shrink or expand due to changes in temperature and humidity. When pegs shrink, they will not fit accordingly, simply apply rosin powder or peg drop oil on the pegs and peg hole. This will fit the gap and increase tension.
Floss the bow with rosin for around 2-3 minutes until you see the white powders come out from the horse hair before it can make a sound.
The sound post may not be in a fixed position, however is held in place for custom fitting to match the curvature of the instrument. During shipping, it’s possible for the sound post to come loose.
